Bentonville 42, Rogers Heritage 10

ROGERS — Bentonville’s football team had its opponents turn turnovers into touchdown four straight times during its losing skid earlier this season.

The Tigers were due to turn the tables, and Brandon Atchison was more than happy to oblige. The junior linebacker intercepted Rogers Heritage quarterbacks Joel Brackett’s pass attempt and raced 51 yards for a touchdown Friday night, and Bentonville was on its way to a 42-10 victory over the War Eagles in 7A-West Conference action at David Gates Stadium.

SPRINGDALE — Fort Smith Southside forced two crucial first-half turnovers and held Springdale High to a season-low 148 yards of offense as the Rebels cruised to a 36-3 win to spoil Senior Night at Bulldog Stadium.

Southside scored two touchdowns in the final minute of the opening half to turn a one-score game into a cushy 23-3 halftime lead en route to the blowout win. The victory kept Southside (7-2, 5-1 7A-West) in the running for the conference title and set up a showdown at … Continue Reading ››

Fayetteville 45, Rogers 7

FAYETTEVILLE — A pair of onside kicks turned the tide Friday night.

Fayetteville turned two onside kicks — including one by Rogers High — into 14 points the final 4 minutes, 43 seconds of the first half as the Bulldogs defeated the Mounties 45-7 in a 7A-West Conference game at Harmon Field.

After Rogers cut the Fayetteville lead to 17-7, the Mounties attempted an onside kick but Garret Wuehler picked up the football at midfield and the senior raced to the end zone for a 24-7 lead. The kick bounced high around the 50 and Wuehler grabbed the football and outran the … Continue Reading ››

Fort Smith Northside 29, Springdale Har-Ber 20

Fort Smith Northside turned two turnovers by Har-Ber into touchdowns as the Grizzlies defeated the Wildcats 29-20 Friday at Mayo-Thompson Stadium.

Northside took a 16-7 halftime lead after an interception return and a fumble return for a touchdown late in the second quarter. The Grizzlies added two score in the second half to withstand two three scores by Luke Hannon, who had two touchdown runs and a reception for a touchdown for Har-Ber.

Shiloh Christian 39, Gravette 14

The Saints built an early 19-0 lead and cruised to their sixth straight win at Champions Stadium.

Shiloh Christian (7-2, 6-0)  took advantage of excellent field position to score three first half touchdowns and rolled from there to set up a winner-take-all game next week at Pea Ridge for the 4A-1 Conference title, a first-round bye in the playoffs and home field advantage throughout the playoffs for the winner.
